Trio Walks From New York to California as Alternative to Gastric Bypass Surgery

Chris Cooke was told by his doctor that his weight was becoming a health risk, and that he should start looking into gastric bypass surgery. Instead, Chris geared up with his brother Joe and their friend Jason, and began a 2,700-mile walk from Buffalo, New York, to Los Angeles, California. Chris and Jason talked to RightThisMinute hosts about their journey, and anyone interested in following their trail can check out their GoFundMe page.
